Speaking to L’Équipe, Lyon President Jean-Michel Aulas provided the following update on Moussa Dembélé, Houssem Aouar and Memphis Depay.
“I have maybe let it be said that all our best players are going to leave. With 8 days left of the window, the 3 magnificents that the media are claiming will leave are still here. They are more likely to stay than leave. We are not obliged to sell. Even though Lyon lost €100m with the stoppage of the league, last season, we are not out in the streets. Now, if Memphis, who is coming to the end of his contract, absolutely wants to leave… What is sure is that if one of the three goes, they will be replaced position for position. We will not weaken. Even without European football we absolutely want to exist and to be able to be in the Champions’ League again. We are not going to do just anything, including if it would be for good economic reasons.”
